  • Just interested in exploring interior design foundations for personal enjoyment.

The Certificate in Interior Design (CID) is a series of introductory courses that make up the foundation year of the college’s undergraduate degree (BFA). The CID curriculum emphasizes the fundamental skills and knowledge of interior design, architectural drawing and historical concepts. Students can attend either part-time or full-time and no portfolio is required to apply for admission.

On its own, the CID can give the student some new and exciting skills and knowledge to apply to a variety of careers in sales, real estate, administrative support and many other fields touched by the design community. Upon completion of the certificate, the student can, if he or she chooses, apply all classes to the BFA in Interior Design and continue in the degree program.
